Open Season for Hackers?

Germany has put into effect the Hacker Tool Law which paragraph 202C states that it is illegal to possess, use, produce, or distribute a “hacker tool”. Now this statement is very vague, and I mean extremely vague... This could even include things such as Nmap or other network monitoring systems.
Is this the end of any German Distribution of Linux? What happens in 3 years when no 'hacker prevention' software is installed on any computer in Germany because the program itself is derived off a hacker tool? This is not smart politics IMHO, and I hope that it is repealed.
